I had my second surgery 6 weeks ago. This surgery was to remove hardware and put in new hardware fusion, L4 L5 S1. Prior to surgery pain in left leg, when I woke up from surgery I had numbness in right leg from hip to toes. Could not feel my foot. Couldn't even tell when I had a shoe on, have been back to doctor 2 times. Have had the steroids, can feel my big toe, can tell when wearing a shoe numb half of my leg the right side, feels like I have a boot on or rubber band, can feel parts of my foot. For the first month woke up every night with terrible pain crying begging my husband to just cut off my leg that is better, feeling so discouraged. Having another scan next week to see if anything wrong with hardware. This is my right leg can't drive, my employer said I voluntarily quit when I couldn't return from fmla( had weeks off before surgery due to so much pain). I am hoping someone can tell me it will get better.
